THE BENEFITS OF OILS:
Does applying oil to your skin terrify you with visions of breakouts, blackheads or a greasy oil slick? I used think the same way. As it turns out, using oils on your skin has some incredible benefits. The attached article explains those benefits in detail and I have added some bonus information for you below. Please DM me if you’re interested in discussing which Beautycounter Lustro oil most benefits your skin type. Thanks for reading!
1. Oils can prevent the irritation caused by some anti-aging ingredients. Argan, yangu, and borage-seed oils all decrease inflammation. Smooth one on after your nightly anti-aging treatment. A few drops will be enough to cover your face and calm the skin.
2. In your late 30’s, wrinkles suddenly look deeper because the skin’s natural oils decrease, the moisture barrier breaks down, and the skin dries out. Most creams contain a little oil, but not enough to make a big difference in water loss. Because oils are lipophilic, or fat loving, they pass though the lipid layer of the skin faster, preventing water loss and plumping skin with moisture more effectively.
3. If you apply an oil before your anti-aging cream, the oil molecules behave like tiny Trojan horses, tricking the skin into letting active ingredients deeper into the skin and closer to the collagen-producing fibroblasts, all without irritating the surface.
